Product Description

Sweet Bananas Taste Like Ice Cream

Why Ice Cream Banana Trees?

A fast-growing, cold-tolerant variety, our Ice Cream Banana Tree is known for its hardy qualities and delicious taste...especially since it produces fruit that actually tastes like ice cream. And you get a tropical look plus amazing strength, since this tree boasts substantial leaves, a strong trunk and well-developed root system that holds up well against the elements.

Plus, it's an effortlessly-growing specimen with gigantic leaves and a stout, sturdy trunk. The lime green leaves are complemented by blue-tinted bananas that give the tree its nickname: Blue Java Banana Tree.

Why Fast-Growing-Trees.com is Better

When you taste the soft, creamy fruit from the Ice Cream Banana Tree, you'll agree that it was aptly named. The taste and consistency is unlike any other banana variety in the world. Often compared to vanilla custard, the flavor and texture is smooth, sweet and creamy. But the best part is, with our Ice Cream Banana, you get fruit faster and more easily because we've planted and nurtured it for months ahead of shipping.

And you won't find this one-of-a-kind variety in big box stores. Plant yours today and start growing Ice Cream in your own backyard!

Pollination Info

Ice Cream Banana Tree Pollination

Ice Cream Banana Trees are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional Ice Cream Banana Tree will drastically increase the size of your crop.

Almost didn’t surive shipping

I planted the banana plant in a container and lost all but one leaf the first few days and the remaining leaf died about a month later. But a new leaf emerged from the top and then another and now it has five leaves and has produced a pup . No bananas yet hut am hopeful. Plant is healthy and I am very pleased. Hope to get fruit in 2000.


Planting & Care

Note: Banana leaves are huge and can sometimes get crinkled in shipping. Simply remove any damaged or worn leaves to stimulate the growth of new leaves. Use them to wrap meat for your next barbecue. During the growing season you will see fresh new leaves appear every few days.

1. Planting: Ice Cream Bananas can tolerate partial shade, but need at least six hours of sunlight a day. Banana Trees don’t like extreme heat, so afternoon shade will be more beneficial for your tree than morning shade. Avoid areas that receive high winds. If you keep it indoors, place your banana tree by a large sunny window.

Once you’ve scouted your planting location, dig a hole that’s twice as wide as the pot and just as deep. Place your tree in the hole, and make sure that it’s level with the surrounding ground and that it’s standing straight up. Gently back fill the hole, tamping down to prevent air pockets and give your tree a long, slow drink of water. Finally, mulch the planting site to conserve water moisture and keep grass and weeds away from the tree.

2. Watering: Keep your soil moist, but not oversaturated. Water your tree every 2 to 3 days during the summer, and every few weeks in the winter, depending on your climate. Warmer areas that are more prone to drought will require water more frequently. If your tree is in a shady area, it will most likely require less water.

But if you're not sure when to water your tree, simply check the soil about 2 inches down - if the soil is dry here, it's time to water.

3. Fertilizing: Give your tree a well-balanced organic fertilizer once a month during the growing season. Fertilizer will have a recommended dose for the size of your tree on the back of the package. We recommend giving your tree half of that dose for best results.

4. Pruning: Remove any damaged or broken leaves that hang downwards. After your tree produces fruit, trim it back to about 30 inches tall, and let the stem dry out for a week or two. Once the stem has dried, remove it. This will allow new banana tree stalks to grow.
